Best of the ‘Burbs 2015: Theater group
Middleton Players Theatre's 2014 production of A Chorus Line.

Middleton Players Theatre, Middleton
If you’re from the suburbs and attend a Middleton Players Theatre performance, it’s not unusual to see neighbors or friends up on stage. The group’s shows are put on by local people, for local people, says marketing director Michelle Larson. Everyone who puts time and effort into a production is there on a voluntary basis. “It’s a testament to the passion they have,” says Larson. But these are no small potatoes productions. MPT recruits great local talent for its shows. MPT continues to grow as it marks its twenty-fifth year of presenting summer shows. This season, head to the Middleton Performing Arts Center for Avenue Q running June 25-July 5, or catch Miss Saigon August 7-15.
Finalists: Stoughton Village Players, Stoughton; Oregon Straw Hat Players, Oregon
